Maybe Microsoft is reading the blog

Yesterday I reported on Microsoft’s gaffe in overpaying severance to laid-off employees. Caught in a potential public relations maelstrom, Microsoft has relented. It issued the following statement yesterday:

Last week, 25 former Microsoft employees were informed that they were overpaid as a part of their severance payments from the company. This was a mistake on our part. We should have handled this situation in a more thoughtful manner. We are reaching out to those impacted to relay that we will not seek any payment from those individuals.

Cnet has the rest of the details.
